coming in. as you can see, less energy. in terms of sectors here. most major names with big moves up last week. energy financials for example, look at sectors. all modestly to the down side today. i think the important thing that's interesting here is that materials are weak here. dollar is down today. that normally helps metal stocks. as you can see, none of them are doing much. but reporting in the next couple of days. want to know, gold stocks having a tough day here. harmony had to shut down mines in south africa because of strikes going on there. gold stocks still not performing very well. we will have an expert on at 1:30 eastern time to talk about the outlook for gold in 2013. >> welcome, good to see you, let's focus on the earnings season kicking off. you wrote about it a little bit this morning on your note. is that a real concern right now? >> i think it is. they prepared us, kind of investors for a weak fourth quarter. they have been talking about it for a while so it shouldn't be too much after surprise. i think the surprise will be the extent of really how bad it'll be, right
, quirky and fun. >> talking about new things, new ways that you're experimenting, you also have energy projects. again, we have an article in the world in 2013 about the extraordinary reduction in cost of solar power, for example, something similar to solar panels. >> there is a china law which is china sort of overproduces to the point of bankruptcy. that is why the panel is so low. it's close. >> do you see technology transforming our energy situation? >> although it's controversial, the fact of the matter is we should give credit to the people who invented the new forms of oil and natural gas drilling generally known as fracking, hydraulic fracking and so forth. those are resources that help us find pore of this stuff. we can have a discussion about recommendation and so forth. it's very controversial. that has materially changed the economic structure of energy in america. if you take a look at conservation and renewables which i think is ultimately the right answer, what you see now is the automation and instrumentation of passive systems, it changes everything. it goes under the

"washington journal" is live on c-span every day at 7:00 eastern. >> i think cyber security remains a top priority because of the national-security implications. we saw that congress failed to reach an agreement in 2012. they remain far apart. the industry is opposed to any server security standards. >> another big issue will be implementing the incentive options to create more spectrum. the fcc is in the midst of working on that. some of the hot-button issues are unlicensed spectrum that powers wi-fi. >> net neutrality could be a big issue. the d.c. ci
. these new sanctions go after sectors of the iranian economy. key industrial soaktores like energy, ship building and ports. this provides revenue iran needs for proliferation activities terrorism and vast human rights repression. jenna: are these steps necessary in order for the run-up to war? >> look, jenna, we've been, this is the triumph of hope over experience. i have no problem with tougher sanctions on iran. it is an important effort but the fact of matter is we've been negotiating with iran since 2003. 2003, that is almost 10 years now. so once again iran as we do these sort of things iran, centrifuges continue to spin. they continue to work on their intercontinental ballistic missile problem which many believe they will have a missile capable of reaching the united states by 2020 three. they are closer to that. they have a missile warhead program. we keep talking to iran. iran likes to talk to us because it gives them more time. time is on their side. i just don't see this making a huge difference in iran's nuclear program and i think this administration's policy failed so far.
needs more than a sensible men and women if it is to prosper. it needs the energy of the creative imagination as expressed in religion and the art. it is crucial to the lives of all of our citizens as it is to all human beings tall times. but they encountered a world as a transcendent meaning of the world in which the human experience makes sense. nothing is more dehumanizing in crisis than to experience one's life as a meaningless event in the meaningless world. we may be approaching what is in our nation on explored and perilous social territory. europe is now experiencing the religious impulse and the results are not attractive. it seems that when a majority of people internalize the big bang theory and asked with peggy lee is that all there is, when many people decide that the universe is merely the result of the cosmic sneeze with no transcendent meaning, when they conclude that there for life should be filled to overflowing with distractions, comfort and entertainments to assuage the boredom, then they may become susceptible to the excitement of politics that promise meaning

time and effort and energy and heart rate goes into something and experiences to stand up for what's right. >> i could not let it go. it just was not right. i could not let go. the law is on my side, and all it did was talk to the supreme court about this ruling until the next ridiculous case that came. it was on the wrong form or wrong date -- it should have been let go. but they thought, okay, just let that one go. the shots were not called in a correct way, in my opinion. she is right. it's a long fight on individuals and hard on families. we cannot leave home on a vacation or go on a trip because we needed to be in reachable place for the attorneys for 10 years. it took nine years in 18 months. >> were we thinking at the time? >> you don't see any cases in the paper that are quick fixes. they dragged him out. equal employment commission has more money than i do a lot of work with them now are you would think that they are doing is training governments that don't bring in the official people to train them and what they should be doing. and they go in and train those people, and

how it is that that energy is designed to elicit the kind of information that would allow us to ask the next logical question about somebody's background? >> yes, sir. the information that we have on refugee applicants does a very in certain regards. .. >> has a shared a story of persecution, a story of flight. they've been in the camp, they've had a ration for 20 years, they've talked about who their children are, who their family members are. so there's quite a long record on who that person is before resettlement to the united states has ever even been talked about. and so when we do the interview with that kind of a family, we will have that record in front of us, and we can elicit testimony and see if the things they are telling us are consistent with the records and the story that they have been telling to the u.n. refugee agency over a period of time, and that can give us greater confidence that the information that we're eliciting is true and accurate. in other cases we may encounter, say an iraqi applicant who has fled much more recently, iraqis tend to have of a very great
